This year i am passing out candy. I was surprised to find there were people who called me and the "cartellingwindows van " a whistle blower" ..
Having the ability to read information that is available to everyone and write a synopsis of what is read, or discuss childhood experiences from a political perspective is not whistle blowing.
None the less...
The candy I am passing out this year IS...
Whistle Blowing Suckers
In September,.,. the month before Halloween, the Kroger Grocery , in Kettering Ohio, sold Halloween decorations. One of the items was a set of three Grim Reaper lights that screamed when you pushed the button. The grim reaper lights screamed four times and the scream sounded like my screams. The name of the product "Scre4m" . Fourth street shooting incident , four screams.
I was told matching the screams to my voice would be difficult to prove.. it is not my job to prove .. I was the victim..
In the 1970's , in the United States of America, in the state of Ohio, the students were told it was dangerous to carry cash with them. This was the only reason I applied for and received my first credit card. I was a student at The Ohio State University.
I came asking for help of a community.. Dayton , Ohio, for a neighboring community, whose citizens were being harmed. Their businesses and families taken..
Tipp-a-can-oe City in Miami County Ohio.. called TIpp City . Their people were tipped, flipped , cracked , ..canned..
The information in the middle of the van are a few of the newspaper articles affiliated with the honey bee casualties.. I will post in clarity more on another blog.. There were many incidences, I did not feel comfortable mentioning the names of possible casualties , as there were no newspaper articles, and they were not family.
For instance .. i was the third Mother ( I know of) who had her breast harmed or placed in danger, after she considered removing her child from the Tipp City athletic program and sending them elsewhere.
I have been asked on several occasions " Who did this?.. Why did they do this? Who is they?"
And I answered
" Don't you think that is asking a lot and very unfair? Most casualties of suspected crimes or war actions are not asked to solve their own problems. If I had been an American soldier, in a foreign land and a reporter asked me "what is this war was about and who were the bad guys?" ..: an acceptable answer would be..
"I am not the war department. There are people who are experienced and trained to answer those questions and it is not me. I suggest you ask them. I do know" they" are not American friendly; and some of the people in my community have been harmed; their lives changed in ways not beneficial to them nor their community."
But... I am not in a foreign country and I am not a soldier. I do not work for the government. I was born and live in the United States of America. My parents are not immigrants. I am a white woman, a wife and a mother. I have a four year Bachelor of Science degree from an accredited American University in Home Economics with an emphasis in Textiles. I was an average to low performing student. Home Economics is one of the first and oldest University degrees woman in the United States were permitted to receive . I am a University educated wife and mother, a professional wife (home manager.. specifically family home management). I am still under a stae employment contract as wife.
Though writing and owning the cartellingwindows blog is quite an education; I have no formalized training in war, espionage, world politics, computers, architecture, or any type of secret stuff. The only three way I ever participated in was my between me, my spouse, and the State of Ohio, in the form of a marriage contract; and a 3-way spaghetti, chili and cheese from the local restaurants.
As a child/teen, when the other children went home to watch cartoons and prime time funnies, I left playtime to listen to Henry Kissinger talk, Nixon's speeches.. and later George Stephonoplous give his take on current political events and leaders. I performed terribly in a political science class at the University. The assigned reading, a book on Jimmy Carter, was damming to President Carters talents, his Presidency and his family. I refused to give the teacher any of my talents and never took another political science class. And then there is Charlie Rose..Umm, love his style.
To help with the honey bee problems, which at the time had no name.. I wrote Laura Bush, George Bush, Dick Chaney, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Steve Ballmer, my family, friends, some of my daughters athletic coaches,, . I wrote the FBI, DOD, Scotland Yard , The English Embassy in Chicago, the local Police, the security guards, university police, The firemen , and the Microsoft managers. I talked to some of the local church leaders,County Commissioners, soldiers. I commented on Internet news articles from a cartellingwindows word perspective.. I was wanting to gain credibility for the pattern and language recognition that would disclose truths of a different color. A credible Marie meant the honey bee people, myself included, may be released from harms way or protected . I wrote NASA.. Told them i was going to be their wing man.. I put myself out there.
Had dinner with a man and woman at the Taco Bell near the Dayton Mall; a Pentecostal minister looking remarkably like Mit Romney. He is a polished speaker and a giant presence of a man) His wife's a little person. I was surprised she's still living after she gave birth to their son. He wanted to know about the honey bees and asked to join me at my table so i could fill him in. It has gotten a little easier since I talked with the minister and his wife.
The librarians were and still are, very helpful.
For all of the anti Dayton comments I have written, it should be known, a significant amount of my childhood was spent in Dayton, Ohio. Dayton is a part of my personality, my educational background and life experiences. There are many quality people in Dayton . It is necessary to recognize in this Christmas correspondance, all of the students, teachers , visitors and residents to Dayton, Ohio, . who stopped to read the van; .offered suggestions and gave advice. Many of the visitors were not American.
As my family is convinced I am a lunatic; and I am not comfortable being a Home Economist in information only.. I have befriended a mid-aged man.. A student looking for a new career after the closure of General Motors . He has never told me his real name. He filled the mother role I was missing with my grown children. He, the man with no real name .. is my friend, a confidant, my adult child, the man who showed me how to start a blog, buy a domain name, and was instrumental in my choosing the name cartellingwindows.com as the official blog name.
From USA Standards, I am relatively poor. My only income is what my husband and family provide. I am not running for any office; nor do I work for any candidate, political or otherwise. I am not a reporter. My research is strictly personal. I am medically verifiable, not insane.
Maybe someone of power and intellect, with permission to take action, would have listened sooner had I the academic credentials for the patterns I was recognizing; or my skin been a color affiliated with abuse. Maybe some of those children would not have died? Maybe some of the unemployed would have kept their jobs. Maybe I would have been able to see my youngest daughter play Basketball ; go to my oldest daughters wedding, see my sons new place. MAY ( BEE)
Some of the Tipp City residents , like most casualties and people in trouble, initially did not understand or recognize the actions against them. Nor did they initially know how to help themselves when they learned of the honey bee casualties ( yet to be determined crimes , acts of war...?) . It was, and is, a large problem (s). If I have made mistakes, written the wrong words, said too much or too little, it is probably because casualties are not suppose, nor expected, to solve the problems or find the bad guys.
Merry Christmas America!!!
